Lovely food. Would highly recommend the mixed kebab for starters. The food was very good and different i.e. Venison curry! Possibly only slight ctitism was that the waiters could add a bit more atmosphere but other than that would recommend as a restaurant with a difference!

Having driven 200 miles we were ready for a meal. Pulled in assuming this would be easy. Very popular and when greeted with a question 'have you a reservation?' I though, oh our luck is out. However they found us a table and we had a very welcome meal and drinks. Food quality is very high and the menu looks... More

Creative Indian menu, everyone had something different and all reports were excellent; great presentations as well. Definitely in my top five for Indian cuisine. Exceptional flavours in every dish. There was a lot of sharing between the four of us for comparison.

Have been using Char Mausum from the day it opened. Best food for miles and I have tried just about every dish, quality of the food keeps me coming back again & again. The staff, like the food are first class. If you can not see what you want just ask, Try it.

Possibly the best Indian food on the north side of Newcastle. A while ago we had a bad experience on a Saturday night when we took two friends out for a treat but there were such long, long delays we don't dare take guests any more but we love the food and so we go weekdays and early to enjoy...
